Few days to the Ondo state governorship election, President Muhammadu Buhari has thrown his weight behind the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
In a thread of tweets posted on his verified Twitter page, President Buhari said Akeredolu is a good brand for the ruling APC to market.
The president said the Ondo state governor deserves a second term in office, adding that he is proud of his achievements.
The tweets read:
"I have no doubt that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu is a good brand for the APC to market. I am particularly delighted by his ingenious approach to governance. His performance within the limits of available resources is endearing.
"Governor Akeredolu deserves to be re-elected to consolidate the good work he commenced in his first term. I am not just proud of his achievements; I am confident he will enjoy the mandate of the good people of Ondo state for the second term."
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that a former national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, expressed certainty that the ruling party will win the Ondo governorship election.
Oshiomhole on Tuesday, October 6, boasted that the Ondo election will be favourable to the APC.
The APC chieftain said he is confident of victory because the governor has done well in the state in the last four years and that the voters, being sophisticated, know what they want.
Meanwhile, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Ondo state seems to have fallen apart as its governorship candidate, Peter Fasua, stepped down for Governor Akeredolu.
This comes a few hours after the party's state chairman, Dele Ogunbameru, led the chairmen of 10 other political parties to announce their support for the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede.
